WSJ: To Curb the Coronavirus, Hong Kong Tells the World Masks Work

by | Apr 9, 2020

See here:

“In Hong Kong, there was never any doubt about the need for face masks. Most people here, including an epidemiologist helping guide the response, are adamant that widespread mask use has been crucial in keeping the city from becoming a viral hot zone.

“If not for universal masking once we depart from our home every day, plus hand hygiene, Hong Kong would be like Italy long ago,” said K.Y. Yuen, a Hong Kong microbiologist advising the government. “If you look at where we’ve had clusters, it’s places where the masks come off, like hot-pot family dinners or Buddhist temples.”

Which raises the question: Just how severely should U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams be punished for deliberately lying about this for months?

I think life in prison in the Florence, Colorado Supermax with the terrorist murderers Ramzi Yousef and Ted Kaczynski sounds about right.
